residual fibrosis in the lungs
Hi! When I had my chest x-ray APL view just this month it was found out that i had a residual fibrosis in the upper right of my lungs.  I am planning to go out of the country to work abroad but I can't anymore because of this condition.  How can this be remedied or is this a fatal condition?  I also noticed that when i joined running competitions like Fun Run I can only run straight 1K and i have to stop every now and then for me to finish the 3K run.  I can also feel pain in my back.  What should I do about this?  I feel so depress lately because all my life I have tried to practice a healthy lifestyle and i never smoke.  Please advise me on what to do.  Will this fibrosis spread to other parts of my lungs?

Based on your description of the chest x-ray, the pattern of fibrosis may be localized to the lung - this can certainly spread but usually stays stable given this pattern.  It may be helpful to ask your doctor to see if it has been stable for a long period of time.  It is unlikely this will spread if the finding has been stable for already years.  best wishes,
